DALLAS (NEXSTAR) – Dallas welcomed 2023 with a massive 360-degree fireworks show on top of the iconic Reunion Tower. The fireworks display was the main event of Saturday’s Lone Star NYE broadcast featuring music from country star and Texas native Casey Donahew.
You can watch a replay of the nonstop, 10-minute fireworks show in the video player above. The show included panoramic fireworks with more than 4,000 pyrotechnic special effects fired from 560 feet above ground. The tower itself was covered with 259 LED lights that displayed thousands of unique designs and patterns during the show.
Lone Star NYE also included drone show along with the fireworks. More than 200 drones flew some 600 feet in the air and formed unique shapes and patterns — even interacting with the fireworks and Reunion Tower.
Before and after the fireworks, viewers were treated to the hits of Casey Donahew. Donahew has recorded 21 #1 singles, according to his website. His top albums include Standoff, All Night Party, The Wild Ride, and One Light Town.
“Lone Star NYE 2023” was hosted by KARK anchor D.J. Williams and KXAS anchor Katy Blakey. It was broadcast across the state of Texas, as well as affiliates in Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arkansas, Kansas, and Missouri.
